Happy 18th Birthday Eli !
Today is the 18th birthday of my youngest niece. I've been working on an album for her for the last few weeks and as it's now finished and been handed over I thought I would share it from start to end. I've not explained every page as that would take weeks, but there's still a few photos so I hope you're sitting comfortably !
Background was made using the resist technique and lots of Tattered Rose DI. The letters are made using the Tim Holtz Word Play die and Distress embossing powder.
I used lots of My Minds Eye paper for this page and scalloped Nestabilities.
Papers, tearing and sewing with some stamping and the Tim Holtz Doily die were the main ingredients on this page.
I couldn't resist doing some Spritz and Flick on this page !
Lots of DI and masks were used for the background. The doily is a paper one bought in the supermarket.
Lots of DI again used with Aspects of Design stamps, Tim Holtz Word Play die and the Cuttlebug Olivia die.
I masked off the bacgkound and then sprayed around the edges for this one. I also dug out my Martha Stewart around the page punches, not used those in ages !
Some more punching around the page coupled with some stamping, eyelets and tickets !
Grunge Board letters, DI and masks with a rosette to finish !
I used watercolour paper and acrylic paint for the background as well as some watercolour stamping too!
And finally punches, canvas hearts and crinoline butterflies and flowers for this page.
I have to say this has been some a pleasure to do and I'm already thinking of my next album ! If you've not been introduce to the Scrap 365 magazine then I would highly recommend it. I have found so much inspiration for this project in every issue.
